The Single Girl Diaries-Merry EX-MAS

Tis the season to be lonely fa la la la la, la la la la. Oh wait….



Let's be honest, this time of year can be rough on a single girl's heart. Couples are all cuddled up sipping hot chocolate in front of the fire as they watch an endless marathon of Hallmark movies. Everywhere you go you see couples smiling and holding hands and enjoying the season together. Every Christmas movie on TV is a Christmas love story and that seems to be the only thing anyone can sing about on the radio.

Ahhh, so much for tis the season to be jolly right? Well, it's okay to feel a little lonely, as long as you don't stay focused on it.

The Christmas season often turns into EX-mas for a lot of us single girls. We start thinking back on the memories we have with our exes and start thinking of all the wonderful holidays we shared with them. The nights you went looking at Christmas lights, the perfect way he surprised you with exactly what you wanted for Christmas {:even though it was more than he could afford:}, and the holiday parties you had a blast at together.

Even though those memories are fun to think about, they should come with a warning label. Don't let your mind slip into the thoughts of shoulda, coulda, woulda, simply because you are lonely and all you want for Christmas is your ex back. The stroll down memory lane is a slippery slope when you're lonely this time of year and can often cause more damage than good. A season of cuddling on the couch isn't worth the many nights of heartbreak that will soon follow when you again remember why it didn't work the first time.

Chin up pretty lady. You are confident, beautiful, and successful and there really is a reason to be JOLLY this season. Plus, just think, this may be your last single girl Christmas ever! So enjoy only spending it with your family instead of hurrying to multiple Christmas dinners.

Merry Christmas Single Girl.
